Plantar Wart Treatment, Surgery vs. Medication?

Plantar warts are caused by an infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV) in the outer layer of skin, commonly on the soles of your feet.

Wart Treatment ranges from over the counter medication (Salicylic Acic or Aspirin) to a more aggressive surgical removal.

WART REMOVAL OPTIONS

Topical therapy. This method uses medications or solutions to directly attack the virus. stimulate your immune system to fight viral warts. Your doctor may inject your warts with a foreign substance (antigen) or apply a solution or cream to the warts.

Liquid Nitrogen treatment. Preferred treatment and done in the clinic with local anesthetic, this wart treatment has a faster healing time and no risk for scarring on on the bottom of the foot. Blister formation after the ‘cryotherapy’ is uncomfortable for 2-3 days and there are no restrictions or harm if the patient bears weight on the area (walking, standing or even running).

Minor surgery. Curretage or surgical removal in an out patient surgery center can be performed if other therapy fails. Other devices such as electrocautery are used for larger areas and in conjuction with curretage.
